WHAT TO DO WITH THE KIDS ON A RAINY SUMMER AFTERNOON WHILE TRYING TO WORK. WELL, SINCE I DON'T HAVE TODDLERS, PAINTING WAS THE ANSWER. WE ARE IN NEED OF A FEW MORE THINGS FOR THE WALLS OF THE REDECORATED ROOMS. SO WITH A BIT OF PAINT, A FEW BRUSHES AND 2 BLANK 16X20 CANVASES THESE ARE THE MASTERPIECES THEY CREATED WHILE MOM WORKED!

So I told my daughter that she could update her room, from the stenciled flowers, dragonflies and bugs, sometime during the Summer. Well that was a few months ago and needless to say it has been Summer. So we painted the walls, bought some teen type art stuff, memory boards etc. Then the furniture, nice real wood furniture, but very old-fashioned. I was going to paint it all, but decided since she has so many pieces it may be to much. So mod-podge is was going to be! With a roll of $3.00 Hallmark wrapping paper, mod-podge and inexpensive knobs from Lowe's her old furniture has a new, fun update. I have only done the desk so far, but you can see the before on the dresser and the after on the desk. Oh and her chair was my Grandmother's and I used a $3.57 can of pink spray paint, what a difference!

In trying to work on hundreds of beach images, this one just makes me smile. I know that mom will not mind me sharing this image. At the end of a large family session, mom wanted a few naked images of her youngest...... and boy did we get some. Out of all of them, this one is just perfect, could the bird have flown in any better????

Bucking Bronco is sometimes what you get at 3, but not in this case. This little cowboy was very cooperative, as was mom. I find with certain kids, even little ones, that they do better without mom around. So this is a special, quick,sneak peak for mom being so cooperative.
